Maintenance

Your vehicle’s maintenance can be as simple and straightforward as an oil service at your 3,000 mile mark, or it can include a larger service at milestones of 30k, 60k, 90k or 120k miles.

It’s understandable that maintenance and repairs on your car, truck, SUV or hybrid may be inconvenient, and yes, even spendy, but your vehicle is a means of getting you places. You rely heavily upon it…and may use it heavily.

Perhaps daily?
A few times daily?

It’s not always easy to remember that “use” creates “wear” on & in a vehicle’s systems.

These are a few of the services and parts involved in the wide world of maintenance:

30/60/90/120K service

Air filters

Belts

Brake flushes

Shocks

Cabin filter

Carbon cleaning

Cooling system flushes

Everyone at Tom's cares about delivering great, expert service and keeping your car or truck in excellent mechanical condition. I have a 2001 Yukon XL which is a 3/4 ton towing vehicle and has been serviced at Tom's for 14 years. It has 187,000 miles on it, and I credit their commitment to excellent service and workmanship for the vehicle's longevity. They are the best in the business, and we are super fortunate to have them in West Seattle.

Hands down the best auto shop I've ever been to. Tom's is always friendly, accommodating and takes time to explain the issue. Recently they went the extra mile on an issue with our car and spent time (that the dealer wouldn't) diagnosing, finding and fixing the issue. All for a fair price and with an incredibly helpful attitude. Don't hesitate for a minute to go to this locally owned small business who consistently knocks it out of the park. We've been going to them for 10+ years and always had A+++ customer service.

I called in to get oil change for my 2018 car and the guy who took my call told me about the importance of going back to the dealer for the first oil change so that we wouldn’t have any warranty issue in the future. He told me that he would be happy to work on our car next time. I’m definitely taking our car back there! Hard to find a place like this nowadays 🙂

What I appreciate most about Tom's Auto in West Seattle is their level of customer service. Compared to a dealership shop, their personal attention to details like explaining the list of items your car needs in order of priority helps to break it down and not be overwhelmed. Yes, car repairs can add up, but their approach makes it palatable. It puts us in the position to prioritize what to take care of first. They are experts in auto repairs and customer service!
